Resource gathering of virtually any type bores me to tears. Oddly enough, I’ve always been more of a fan of managing resource gathering. So, instead of chopping trees or mining ore I set up my infastructure and let things happen while I’m free to do what I enjoy most: Killing everything in sight.
That being said, SWTOR’s resource gathering system is far from perfect it was the system that kept me crafting longer than any other MMO.
I will end this response by saying that this type of system is likely not ideal for the majority of players. I enjoy a lot of business sims, and they’re definitely an aquired taste.
